The Toronto Newsgirls Boxing Club, Canada’s first women-only boxing club, presents a 2012 calendar in support of Shape Your Life. The calendar features 12 powerful images of Toronto’s toughest female boxers, including Richland Academy’s Grade 5/6 Teacher, Megan Cooney.
The calendars are being sold at $20 each with part of the proceeds going toward Shape Your Life, a recreational boxing program for female and trans survivors of violence.
In celebration of World Kindness Week, Richland Ambassadors hosted a ‘Fundraiser for Haiti’ event. As part of the Fundraiser, students took orders for Me to We Artisans jewellery, a line of original accessories handcrafted by artisans in Free The Children countries across the globe, as well as customized, ethically-produced Me to We Style t-shirts and scarves that express our commitment toward Free The Children initiatives.
With the generous support of our Richland Community, we raised $560 towards our $8,000 goal of Adopting-a-Village in Haiti. With the environmental impact of our Me to We Style order, we saved 3.96 lbs. of pesticide and 12 trees were planted on our behalf.
